How To Beauty: Flawless Eyeshadow & MakeUp for Valentine’s Day

Looking to create a new look for Valentine’s Day? Here’s how to create a flawless eyeshadow look for only $5 & update your existing must have beauty kit for a grand total of $12.

I bought all of the makeup below for only $12 at Walmart.  Really. $12!!! Isn’t that crazy inexpensive and awesome?

I heart e.l.f. makeup and have been buying this brand for years online. Now, eyes lips face, aka e.l.f is sold in store at Walmart in the beauty aisle. I was super excited to stumble upon e.l.f. on my most recent trip to Walmart when I was hoping to grab some new beauty goodies.

e.l.f. is known for being a great value as it is an inexpensive line paired with awesome quality. I love that the low price point also lets me purchase multiple shades of a product too which insures I’ll find a color that I love most. $12 is a super low investment to update your beauty kit & a great way to test out a new look for Valentine’s Day.

1. For the eyes:

Flawless Eyeshadow from e.l.f. in Tantalizing Taupe $1.99

At Walmart, for only $5 you can buy both quality eye shadow application brushes and a complete flawless eyeshadow kit from e.l.f. Fabulous!

Even better, as you can tell from my photo below, e.l.f. eyeshadow literally explains EXACTLY how to create a flawless eye by telling you which shades to apply where – from the browbone, to the eyelid to the crease of the eye, to the the corners.

Must Do Tip: Use a wide angled eyeshadow brush when applying eyeshadow. This is ESSENTIAL. It allows you to blend shades and truly apply the eyeshadow compared to the virtually useless minute eyeshadow brushes that come free with all eyeshadows.

Best beauty tip for the eyes anyone will ever tell you! Trust me, eye shadow that looks flawless & amazing is all about using the right application tools.

The “C” brush & the Defining Eye Brush work excellent – but really any wide angled brush will do. Sold for $1 or $2 depending on the brush you choose. 

2. For the face: Golden Bronzer $2.99


At $2.99, you can’t beat this bronzer. It comes in a beautiful compact and will last you 6 months. Incredible. I love e.l.f.’s  Golden Bronzer and Blush Bronzer shades which are both sold at Walmart. A great way to give you face a bright sunny glow in the  middle of winter so you look beautiful for your Valentine’s Day date night out.

3. Lips: Pout Perfecter in Glow $2 

New lip gloss or lipstick is a total must have. I love changing colors all the time. This glow shade looks super natural and almost like a nude pink with mixed sparkles that literally shimmer. I love it!

  1. […] If you’ve never tried anything from e.l.f, definitely check out that line – it’s less well known but now sold at Walmart and costs as low as $1-$2 per item. The quality is high while the price is low. This brand provides my ideal way to experiment with new colors or products or create special occasion beauty looks like these flawless eyes.  […]
